About JamesDSwinney
Hello, my name is James D. Swinney. I am a writer, from Alberta, Canada. I have been writing fantasy stories for several years now, and reading fantasy my whole life. But it's always been the maps that have fascinated me. Ever since I read the Lord of the Rings, I have been drawing maps of fantasy lands, which have grown progressively more detailed as I have fleshed out my worlds. I am still very much an amateur, and all my maps are done by hand, but I like to think that I am learning.
Alberta, Canada
Reading, writing, drawing maps, music
